Claiming to burn fat and build muscle, Alphamine isn’t another cookie-cutter diet pill. For starters, it comes as a powder not pills. When I heard about Alphamine, I was excited to learn more. Is it really a “revolution in weight loss” like the company (PES) says? Is Alphamine safe and effective? I hope my research provides you with these answers and more.
How Does Alphamine Work?
Choline Bitartrate – provides longer-lasting results and promotes fat loss.
AHI Acid – prevents muscle breakdown and preserves lean mass.
Eucommia Ulmoides – reduces blood sugar, burns fat, and reduces cravings.
Olea Europaea – increases thyroid hormone T3, which boosts metabolism. It also reduces inflammation.
Caffeine Anhydrous – improves focus, increases endurance, and promotes thermogenesis.
Higenamine – increases thermogenesis.
Yohimbe – boosts energy and thermogenesis. It’s an aphrodisiac, too.
N-Benzamide – also known as tembamide. It’s a powerful thermogenic.
N-Coumaryldopamine – strengthens muscle and increases lean mass.
These ingredients are in proprietary blends. The total dosage is 1577.5 mg, but individual dosages are undisclosed. Unless safe, effective dosages are used, Alphamine will not be safe or effective. Unfortunately, only PES knows what the dosages are.
Safety and Side Effects
I don’t know if Alphamine has safe dosages. It does have one potentially unsafe ingredient, yohimbe. According to WebMD, yohimbe may cause increased heart rate, kidney failure, stroke, and heart attack. If more than 100 mg is used, yohimbe is more likely to cause severe side effects.
Because it contains stimulants (caffeine and yohimbe), Alphamine may cause these side effects:
• Increased heart rate and blood pressure
• Stomach upset
Do Users Like Alphamine?
Most user reviews rate Alphamine positively. People say it burns fat and build muscle as promised. They love the powder. Alphamine also increases energy and reduces cravings, users say. There are no reports of serious side effects.
I only found a few reviews, and I would like to see more. This small sample size doesn’t show me what most Alphamine users think.
How to Get the Best Results
Mix each scoop with 4-6 ounces of water. Take 1-2 scoops 30 minutes before breakfast and 1 more scoop before lunch or exercise. If you are sensitive to stimulants, I suggest taking smaller dosages for the first few days. Do not take more than 3 scoops in a 24-hour period.
Alphamine works best on an empty stomach. I don’t recommend taking it after 5pm since the stimulants may interfere with sleep.
For best results…
• Take 2 scoops daily as recommended
• Eat a balanced diet
• Perform intense exercise regularly
• Men: drink 124 fl. oz. a day
• Women: drink 91 fl. oz. a day
• Cycle Alphamine 8 weeks on and 4 weeks off
Taste and Mixability
Powder is easier to take than pills and provides more serving size flexibility. But a nasty, gritty powder can be a deal breaker. Luckily, users love the Fruit Punch and Raspberry Lemonade flavors. Alphamine mixes well in water, too. I’m impressed with the taste and mixability because this is PES’s first powder.
Lowest Online Prices
Alphamine costs $59.99 on the official PES website. For this price, you get 84 servings (4 week supply). Since PEScience.com doesn’t offer a guarantee, there’s no incentive to pay this high price. I suggest buying Alphamine from these reputable retailers:
• eSupplements.com – $35.99
• Amazon.com – $40.50
Should You Try Alphamine?
There are only a few fat-burning/muscle-building diet pills. I’ve never seen one as powder. And, Alphamine has many new ingredients. It is truly a unique diet pill. But is Alphamine worth trying? I’m skeptical.
Alphamine may or may not have safe, effective dosages. I really don’t know. However, I do know that Alphamine has yohimbe, which may not be safe. This concerns me.
I don’t recommend trying Alphamine. Instead, find a diet pill that produces results without risks.
